Since having this little one, I lost all my pregnancy weight but then piled it back on (and more!) through really bad eating habits. Partly a mixture of not feeling like I had enough time to prep healthy food plus not exercising meant that my weight ballooned quickly, but for a while I chose to do nothing. I had zero motivation to workout, felt really unhealthy from fuelling my body with junk and I couldn’t really see a way out of that mindset. This picture was taken at the height of this. . . Having tried other weight loss programmes, they’d work for a short period of time but I’d find that if I ‘fell of the wagon’, I’d binge eat in an attempt to make myself feel better- using food as a comfort. Part of the problem with these programmes is that they teach really unhealthy habits- eat as much Mullerlight Yoghurts/ pasta as you like but you’ll have to ‘syn’ an avocado or smoothies! Both of those latter things are infinitely more nutritious than all of the fat free yoghurts. I knew that if I was to change the way I was living and get out of a yo-yo dieting pattern then I’d have to explore new avenues of living a healthy lifestyle. . . That was almost four weeks ago now, and I’m onto my last week of my current exercise programme. I’m yet to weigh myself as I made a promise to myself at the beginning of this to only ‘weigh in’ at the start and end of programmes. The reason for this? I lost count of the amount of times I’d step on the scales previously, and I’d be incredibly downhearted if I hadn’t lost anything- even if I’d only weighed myself the night before! This way I’m keeping on track and I can already FEEL that my shape is changing- clothes are looser, my face has lost it’s puffiness and I just have so much more energy! . . If you’re feeling stuck in a rut with your current eating habits , then please give yourself some love and remind yourself how much better you feel when you’re eating right/moving more.
